GAIR – Glove™ Airflow

Sometimes people get too warm whilst sitting on a sling in their chair. This can cause discomfort but much worse, it could increase the risk of tissue problems in the longer term. The problem is getting air to the skin.

Whilst most slings are made from breathable fabrics, some seating systems and cushions in wheelchairs are not breathable. In a warm environment this may cause a person to overheat and sweat. The Glove™ Airflow has been uniquely designed to help with this problem.

Our Glove™ slings are available in 12 sizes, with clip and loop options. The Safe Working Load for sizes 1-9 is 200kg and 350kg for sizes 10-12.

All of our slings have contrasting colours for safety critical stitching and are compatible with most hoists. Contact us for sling compatibility confirmation.
